GoGold Intersects 4.2m of 559 g/t Silver Equivalent and 23.2m of 163 g/t Silver Equivalent at San Juan






GoGold Resources Inc. (TSX: GGD) (OTCQX: GLGDF) is pleased to release the assay results from 8 diamond drill holes at the Los Ricos South Project, including 3 at San Juan and 5 at the Main Area of the project.  The positive results continue to show the strength of the Los Ricos South Project in the Company’s Los Ricos district.


Hole LRGG-20-143 was drilled on section 700N in the San Juan area of the project and intersected the Los Ricos quartz vein from 12.5 to 35.7m.  The 23.2m intersection averaged 163 g/t silver equivalent, which consisted of 113 g/t silver and 0.68 g/t gold.  The intersection included 11.7m of 224.5 g/t silver equivalent, or 2.99 g/t gold equivalent.


“The results we’re seeing at the San Juan area of Los Ricos South are very promising, as this is at the northern end of that project.  As we continue to see strong results from Los Ricos South, we are encouraged that these are only the first results of the many targets which we plan to explore along the 35km trend in the Los Ricos District.  We look forward to testing these in the near future, which bodes well for the continuing prospects of this exciting district and our shareholders,” said Brad Langille, President and CEO.


Hole LRGG-20-145 was drilled on section 750N in the San Juan area and intersected 22.3m of 128 g/t silver equivalent near surface, consisting of 52 g/t silver and 1.01 g/t gold.  The intersect included 10m of 198 g/t silver equivalent, or 2.64 g/t gold equivalent.


Hole LRGG-20-146 was drilled on section 550N in the Main area and intersected 4.2m of 559 g/t silver equivalent from 249.4 to 253.5m.  The intersect consisted of 344 g/t silver and 2.87 g/t gold.  The hole also intersected 10.9m of backfilled stope from 238.5m to 249.4m, prior to intersecting the mineralized interval.


Detailed intersections are listed in Table 1, and the hole locations are shown in Table 2.

Los Ricos Exploration Projects


Drilling at the Los Ricos projects is temporarily suspended due to COVID-19 to ensure the safety of the Company’s employees, contractors, and surrounding communities, in compliance with the Mexican Federal government’s mandate that all non-essential business temporarily suspend activities.  The Company continues to receive assaying results on drill holes completed previous to the suspension of drilling, which are in the assaying process.


The Company’s two exploration projects at its Los Ricos property are in Jalisco state, Mexico.  The South Project began in March 2019 and includes the ‘Main’ area, which is focused on drilling around a number of historical mines including El Abra, El Troce, San Juan, and Rascadero.  The South Project also includes the Cerro Colorado and Las Lamas targets.  The North Project was launched in March 2020 and includes the Monte del Favor, Salomon, La Trini, and Mololoa targets.  


Procedure, Quality Assurance / Quality Control and Data Verification


The diamond drill core (HQ size) is geologically logged, photographed and marked for sampling. When the sample lengths are determined, the full core is sawn with a diamond blade core saw with one half of the core being bagged and tagged for assay. The remaining half portion is returned to the core trays for storage and/or for metallurgical test work. 


The sealed and tagged sample bags are transported to the ActLabs facility in Zacatecas, Mexico. ActLabs crushes the samples and prepares 200-300 gram pulp samples with ninety percent passing Tyler 150 mesh (106μm). The pulps are assayed for gold using a 50-gram charge by fire assay (Code 1A2-50) and over limits greater than 10 grams per tonne are re-assayed using a gravimetric finish (Code 1A3-50). Silver and multi-element analysis is completed using total digestion (Code 1F2 Total Digestion ICP). Over limits greater than 100 grams per tonne silver are re-assayed using a gravimetric finish (Code 8-Ag FA-GRAV Ag).


Quality assurance and quality control procedures monitor the chain-of-custody of the samples and includes the systematic insertion and monitoring of appropriate reference materials (certified standards, blanks and duplicates) into the sample strings. The results of the assaying of the QA/QC material included in each batch are tracked to ensure the integrity of the assay data.  All results stated in this announcement have passed GoGold’s QA/QC protocols.
